Seven Glorious Days
A Scientist Retells the Genesis Creation Story
By Karl W. Giberson
What would the biblical creation story look like if it was written today? Is it possible to view modern scientific explanations as "creation stories"?
Using biblical imagery and vivid metaphors, popular author and leading science-and-religion scholar Karl Giberson recasts the Genesis creation story within the framework of the latest ideas from modern science. Seven Glorious Days takes the reader on a grand ride through the history of the universe from the Big Bang, to the origin of stars and planets, to the appearance of living creatures bearing the image of God.
The narrative is accessible, lively and faith-affirming. Readers worried about the tension between science and religion will welcome their harmonious convergence in this timely and provocative book.
